They may have looked all prim and proper, but the Victorians were
a jolly naughty bunch who could be vicious and violent and villainous.

the first public loo was flushed and all about stag hunting in Paddington
Station. With a bold, accessible new look, these bestselling
titles are sure to be a huge hit with yet another generation
of Terry Deary fans.

Revised by the author and illustrated throughout to make Horrible
Histories more accessible to young readers.

Terry writes from his home in County Durham where he lives with his wife an d daughter. It takes him anything between six hours and six weeks to write a book!
